Saturday, January 30, 1915

Sent Giza article with illustrations for the Bulletin and letter to Mr. Fairbanks this morning. Hope I made Reis Mahmud understand that it was to be registered.
Work was carried on again this morning clearing out hard-packed debris which was under the sand in street south of 3030. In debris a number of small pottery ceremonial jars and saucers.
Finished clearing out sand and a little hard debris from between 3030 and 3040 [= G 1451]. In small space under mastaba 3040 [= G 1451] was found a number of small pottery ceremonial jars and saucers, a rough flint spear head, a small piece of worked flint, and a fragment of a large pottery jar of thick rough ware.
